Album Review ~ Control Vol. 2 By Joel Vaughn

Category Religious/Christian Genre Urban Pop Rating 5 Stars Review Control Vol. 2 begins with such energy and vibes that prepare the heart and soul for worship and praise, as is mirrored in the opening song, Unreserved. Joel Vaughn brings the flavor unique to him that breathes passion and unreserved surrender to a God he believes in, and this shines through in his voice and music. It’s impossible to miss—and almost unforgivable not to mention—the undeniable growth of the singer and songwriter in Vaughn. The increased confidence in craft is evident, amiable, contagious, and inspiring, as though Vaughn not only knows what He is about, but believes the truth preached in his music, lives by them, and now offers them to the world. Since Control Vol. 2 picked up from where Vol. 1 left off (read the TBAP review here), the same theme runs through—Letting Go and Letting God, which is the best decision any individual could ever make. The songs portray various situations and circumstances where faith may be tested, and the believer is reminded …

Album Review ~ Control (Vol. 1) By Joel Vaughn

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Pop Release Date July 27, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review Timely. Deep. Sincere…are just a few words to describe Joel Vaughn’s remarkable forthcoming release, Control Vol. 1. The maturity with which Vaughn speaks his truth is inspirationally amiable and garners respect. It takes growth and humility to confess one’s truth and messy experiences in such a way that in the end, it highlights peace, gratitude, hope, and joy…and, yeah, it’s no wonder Vaughn chooses to close the album with a number titled Joy. Every song is clearly prayerfully written, packed with powerful candor, and track arranged in a manner to speak a message of life, peace, hope, and rest that can be found only in Jesus. In the midst of this awesomeness that chronicles a peculiar season where God pulls down pride, false humility and lovingly builds this individual with the perseverance that fosters character, and adds the peace, rest, and joy that comes only from genuine faith brought forth from drilling trials, please pay attention to track #4, Back Where I …

Joel Vaughn Releases ‘If I Trust In You’ Music Video

Joel Vaughn is proud to announce the release of the official music video for If I Trust In You off his current EP, Surrender (read the TBAP review here).  Often referred to as the critical favorite on the album with CCMMagazine calling it a “…mega hit…,” TodaysChristianEnt.com referring to the song as having “powerfully moving lyrics and strong falsetto vocals…” and, 365DaysOfInspiringMedia.com mentioning that it’s “Easily the catchiest and most ‘pop’ offering of this batch of songs…,” the pop artist decided to make this his music video debut. Joel shares his thoughts on the song: “How many times have we stepped out in faith in spite of our fear when Jesus called us to follow him? Sometimes we feel like we’re sinking like Peter did when he stepped out onto the water when Jesus called him. But Jesus reached out and saved Peter when he sank. This song is a reminder to everyone who feels like they are sinking, that we can put our faith and trust fully in Jesus. He will save us and we can absolutely trust in him.” – Joel Vaughn Play The Music …

Album Review ~ Surrender by Joel Vaughn

Category Religious/Christian Genre R&B/Pop Release Date January 27, 2017 Rating 4.5 Stars Review Surrender is a beautiful album that reflects a person’s need for God and His love. It’s more than a collection of songs—it’s a string of prayers, hope, and truth that is organic and relatable on a very deep level. With a clear, powerful, and soothing voice, Vaughn sings with heart that leads a listener to that true place of faith, hope, and worship. Need I mention the stunning lyrics? Vaughn is an artist that has successfully combined R&B with pop to create a unique blend that can be donned the Vaughn Style. Most definitely an artist to watch. It won’t be long before he becomes a brand. Finally, I’d be sorely disappointed if the song, If I Trust In You, doesn’t appear in the next Wow release…yeah, it’s that good. *Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. My thanks to DREAM Records for a private download link that allowed me access to the Surrender Album in …
